Garden of Evil

The end of the vegetable season is clearly upon us. The vines are turning yellow, my canteloupes are stunted at softball size, bugs are feasting on the decaying plant matter. It's all just a little gross out there. And so I lay my critical eye upon the garden and hack crap off.

In the hacking process though, I found a few gems:

My big pumpkins are also coming along nicely:

I'm trying to take notes as I go, so that I'll know what works and what doesn't for next years mad spring plant-a-thon. For sure, we're doing the Spooktacular pumpkins again (if not only for the name) and I'll try growing some gourds - just because they're weird looking. Hopefully I'll be able to get the rest of this garbage out of the beds soon and plant the winter garden.

With any luck I'll soon be posting pictures of wee cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce, onions and carrots. BTW, if anyone wants a watermelon dropped on their doorstep, lemme know.

  1. Fin! Look at your garden. I cannot believe what progress you've had. Those ag classes are paying off, eh?
    And I love the new sidebar. You are one creative chica for figuring out how to do that. Glad your crafting/gardening weekend went well.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
